AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): So, Dan, the article says that [White House counsel Don] McGahn was interviewed with investigators -- Mueller investigators, for over 30 hours over the past nine months. What do you make of this?
DAN BONGINO (NRATV HOST): I don't mean to laugh, but this case has gone from embarrassing to really like an intergalactic disgrace at this point. When are we going to get to the collusion? Guys, the entire country -- the emergency brake on the entire country has been pulled for the last year and a half because we've been told that Donald Trump's team, right, colluded with the Russians to win an election. Are we ever going to get to the actual collusion?
You know what this reminds me of, this case? You ever get a really big box like, from Amazon or something, and you could tell they were out of cardboard? And it's this huge box and you think, like, oh this has to be like, what, a dog kennel or something like that? And you're going through the box, and you're throwing the air popcorn out, and it's like a bottle of vitamin pills? And you're like, what happened? Were they running out of boxes?
This is the Mueller case. It's a box of air popcorn. Guys, there's no there there. There is no case. Mueller's down to, what? Yellow cab taxi fraud now with Michael Cohen? This is what we shut the country down for. This case is a joke and he knows it.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Man oh man, and I mean, just look at what we just had in the news about the Paul Manafort trial. That's not about collusion at all. That is about bank fraud and tax evasion.
Regarding Rudy [Giuliani], though, since we heard him talk about how desperate people are -- it's suddenly has become a meme where Rudy says, "Truth isn't truth." What he was talking about is, apparently, the president and Mr. [James] Comey have two different versions of what happened. The president says he never had a conversation with Mr. Comey about whether or not to take it easy on Mr. [Michael] Flynn, and Mr. Comey says that they did indeed have a conversation and he memorialized it with a memo. So, do you understand what Rudy was saying when he said truth isn't truth?
BONGINO: No, I absolutely do. And, here's the problem here: The media will jump on that because they're just being grossly irresponsible and they want to nail Trump to the wall. But, Steve, here's the thing: The FBI can't themselves agree if truth is truth. Not just about the Comey meeting you're referring to, but what about the Mike Flynn case? Hey, Steve, if the truth is the truth, then how come the FBI agents who told the, air quotes here, "truth," and said, hey, they saw no evidence of deception in Mike Flynn's interview. How come Bob Mueller turned around and charged him with lying to the FBI?
Steve, I'm not playing word games with you when I say, if I interview you and I sense no signs of deception, wouldn't that mean to a normal, reasonable person, "I don't think you lied?" Apparently not to Bob Mueller. So, I know the media is having a lot of fun with this and playing their dopey, silly games. But the reality is, what Rudy said has merit to it. The FBI themselves can't even agree what the truth is on this case, and yet they charge Mike Flynn anyway. By the way, the Trump team has every reason to be suspicious of Bob Mueller's intentions, precisely because of things like that.
